Free Speech Activists Gather at WilmerHale to Protest Pepe Meme Lawsuit Threats

Published

on

Free speech activists gathered for an impromptu and unannounced protest outside WilmerHale on Wednesday to speak out against the firm’s lawsuits threats on behalf of their Pepe-creator client Matt Furie.

The DC-based firm has filed a cease and desist on behalf of Furie regarding the use of Pepe memes against Mike Cernovich, Baked Alaska, The Donald subreddit, and others — as well as threatening a lawsuit.

On Wednesday, approximately 20 people gathered with signs, including at least one featuring Pepe himself, and chanted “Stop Censorship.”

As Big League Politics reported earlier in the day, a meme of Pepe wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat was also projected on the front of the Wilmer Hale building late Tuesday evening.

Photos and video of the projector protest was provided exclusively to Big League Politics by an anonymous tipster. The tipster told Big League Politics that “projecting the content that WilmerHale is so desperate to censor onto its headquarters is a good way to let them know that their bullying won’t work.”

“If WilmerHale thinks it can use its status as a white-shoe DC law firm to silence speech with which its elitist clients disagree, they are sorely mistaken. I expect more things like this to happen in the future, as free speech advocates will continue to push back against WilmerHale’s Orwellian tactics,” the anonymous source added.

WilmerHale is Robert Mueller’s former law firm and represents clients such as Disney, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner. There has previously been concerns from politicians and media about the firm’s client list being in conflict with his role as a special prosecutor overseeing the Russia election meddling witch hunt.

The escalating battle between those with a fondness for internet culture and WilmerHale appears to be shaping up similar to the 2016 war between 4chan and Reddit users and actor Shia Labeouf’s He Will Not Divide Us installation.

Lebeouf had installed a livestream camera as an art installation against President Donald Trump, which became a hangout for many of the internet’s top internet trolls. After things didn’t go according to the actor’s plan, he was forced to remove the installation that had been previously set to run throughout Trump’s presidency.

Instead, Lebeouf decided to livestream “He Will Not Divide Us” flags from a museum, and eventually undisclosed locations. After the flag was repeatedly located and captured by 4chan trolls, using flight patterns and other insanely clever methods, the actor finally gave up.

Judging by the past 24 hours, it appears that WilmerHale has now caught their attention, and as those who enjoy Pepe would say — it is shaping up for some “top kek.”

Anti-Defamation League Hits Michelle Malkin with Shameful ‘White Supremacy’ Smear

They say she is normalizing white supremacy.

Published

on

The vehemently anti-Trump, anti-American, anti-Constitution organization – the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) – has started a vicious smear campaign against right-wing pundit Michelle Malkin for “normalizing white supremacy.”

“Conservative pundit and syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin has a long history of divisive rhetoric around a range of issues – particularly immigration. In the past year, however, she has publicly and explicitly allied herself with white supremacists, particularly the so-called “groypers,” appearing on white supremacist podcasts and other online programs,” the ADL wrote.

“Malkin’s bold support of and interaction with white supremacists points to the increasingly fine line between people who call themselves “American nationalists” and recognizable white supremacy,” they added.

ADL uses guilt-by-association tactics to attack Malkin in their smear. She has appeared with or vouched for “America First” leaders like Nick Fuentes, Gavin McInnes, Patrick Casey, Scott Greer and Vincent James in recent months, which the ADL finds unacceptable.

“Malkin has clearly crossed a boundary in terms of her association with white supremacists. Nick Fuentes and the groypers present themselves as Christian conservatives and American nationalists while they attempt to normalize white supremacist views. Malkin justifies her embrace of those views by arguing that her “enemies” (the left, mainstream media, social media sites and now mainstream conservatives) are attacking “dissident voices,” including her own,” the ADL wrote.

They also hammered Malkin for appearing at the America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC) in February, in which she gave a speech about the importance of nationalism and protecting the demographic integrity of America.

“I will tell you that over the years I have tried to drum into the heads of normies, that the brave formulation of being against illegal immigration, but for legal immigration is kindergarten level thinking. And it is really alarming that even after all of this time that the cognitive handicaps of so many people who consider themselves America Firsters, is such that they don’t even know the basic fact that we grant 1.1 million Green Cards to this country every year,” she said during her iconic speech.

She also hammered the ADL for their dishonest and disreputable tactics during her AFPAC speech.

“It’s anti-Semitic to mention George Soros’s billions. It’s anti-Semitic to criticize the Anti-Defamation League. It’s anti-Semitic to question whatever the precise number is of people who perished in World War II. It is anti-Semitic for me, being married to a 100% Ashkenazi Jew, to question dual loyalties of people who are working here as agents of a foreign country,” Malkin said.

“I feel very confident that you, the Light Brigade, the America First Brigade, are well positioned to do what so few other grassroots revolts and rebellions have succeeded in doing. I believe in you,” she said to conclude her speech. “I honor your charge. I honor your mission. You may not have finances, but you have faith in this country and you have many more friends than you know. God bless you.”

With the Conservative Inc. establishment unable to destroy Malkin, the far-left ADL is now trying to ruin her career. Their plot is not likely to succeed.
